    Ibis White S3 Owner

    Fair play mate, each to their own. Post some photos if you get around to it. Would be interested to see how it looks :thumbs up:

    Ibis White S3 Owner

    To answer your earlier question, not a clue mate. I haven't done it myself. Agree with Sam on this one, dual pipes on an 8P is not the one. A good exhaust with 3" tailpipes should be a nice hint on an S3 but I quite like the understated look anyway.

    Ibis White S3 Owner

    I've found the WRC system perfect for a daily car. Pottering along on my commute to work it's only slightly louder than stock with a much better tone. Easily lost with music on in the car. BUT as soon as you put your foot down it completely changes, silly loud but really enjoyable for a spirited...

    Ibis white, black edition, S3 sportback 8p

    Might try with the brighter LED's and no canbus, see if that makes a difference. Ah nice, would be worth seeing a comparison between Audi and BMW. It normally comes down to driving style on which people prefer.

    Ibis white, black edition, S3 sportback 8p

    Car looks mint! Shame to hear you're looking at selling. Moving onto anything special? Do you get a warning light on your dash with your number plate light? I did with mine so changed to an earlier version but its not as bright. Definitely prefer the brighter look with the Ibis white :thumbs up:

    Car park ding :(

    Glad to hear everything has been sorted now and you're not liable! But this does annoy the hell out of me that these people don't get charged for criminal damage or something to deter people from doing this in the future. The guy who hit my car wasn't caught on camera so I had to take on the...

    Car park ding :(

    Sorry to hear this bud! I'm immensely paranoid about this. Just ask my gf when she has to walk from the *** end of every car park miles away from civilisation! I had something similar happen to me (pics attached)...not picked up on the car park cameras :rage: I'd highly recommend Autocraft...

    HALDEX issues front wheel spinning quattro issues

    Just had mine replaced on my recently purchased FL S3. The car has a full Audi service history but as @mechanic69 has said above, they don't see the filter as a serviceable part, which for the sake of £40 is a bit silly. This eventually blocks and leads to a faulty pump. Just add a 1.5hr rate to...

    Bought my first Audi!

    That's fair enough mate. Again, love your S3. I'll keep an eye on this thread for any developments :icon thumright:

    Bought my first Audi!

    I thought they were in Warwickshire but I did hear they had recently moved. Not sure if their site has been updated. http://r-techperformance.co.uk/

    Bought my first Audi!

    That's fair enough mate. Worth checking out R-Tech depending on where you are in the country. Plenty of people on here would recommend them as one of the top custom tuners for the 8P.

    Bought my first Audi!

    Is it stage 2+ next for you now? How come you want to go away from the Revo map?

    Bought my first Audi!

    Awesome S3 mate! I'm a huge fan of the roof rails on the SB. Breaks up the white nicely. Is that revo lettering on the back? Thought they only came as a badge...but that doesn't look like a badge?

    Common problems

    A well looked after S3 can be very reliable, full service history etc. With regards to the gearbox and turbos, I had a manual S3 (2010) for 4 years and the gearbox never skipped a beat. Haven't heard of anyone having turbo problems. I've recently moved over to the S-Tronic just out of a want for...

    Who's interior creaks?

    I was more following the thread of someone who was trying to resolve this issue. I had it on my old S. I'm pretty sure he got to a point where he replaced everything he could think of and was just going to live with the noise. Similar to Fernando, haven't found anyone who has fixed this yet.

    Who's interior creaks?

    That really sucks, but i know exactly what you mean. I was following a thread on here where someone had the exact same issue. Like you, he was going through replacing parts to try and get rid of the knocking noise but with no luck. Use to drive my up the wall and part of the reason i moved on...

    Who's interior creaks?

    Oh! I thought coilovers were the only thing that worked with mag ride. What have you used to lower the car that hasn't effected the mag ride?

    Who's interior creaks?

    Apologies OP for the slight change of subject! Fernando Young, how has lowering your car effected your mag ride? Does it still work? I've heard coil overs are the best option if you have mag ride?

    Who's interior creaks?

    I use to get some random interior panel creaks on my old S3 (10 plate), stock suspension. This also has a suspension knocking noise that i never managed to resolve. Nothing overly noticeable and I couldn't quite figure out where it was coming from. Panaramic roof was also part of this...
